Spike's VGX may no longer be this year's big holiday showcase—former host Geoff Keighley just announced plans for a new December awards show, The Game Awards, which promises "awards, world premieres, musical performances, and appearances by game developers, eSports players and online content creators."
Dropping out of the sky like a meteorite during the VGX, No Man's Sky is the game that's seemingly captured the imagination of every video game enthusiast on the planet. But, aside from the amazing trailer, there's not a whole lot known about Hello Games' cosmically ambitious game. Here's the info we've found…
It's hard to put into words how cringe-inducing all the cross-talk, missed throws, tongue-tied teleprompter mishaps, and bombed jokes were at last night's VGX. That's where this six-minute supercut by PixelPerfect comes in handy.
The morning after the VGX, it's striking to see gamers once again arguing, ruminating, caring so much about a spectacle that seems to care so little about them. Or, if last night was an indication, itself.
Spike dumped the theater format for a more whatever-that-was in last night's re-christened VGX, increasing the show's length to three hours but still, as ever, seeming to minimize its purpose: Recognize the best games of the year. Twenty-three awards were given out; here are all of them.
Hammond Robotics is the fictious contractor building those ballbreaking mechs in Titanfall, and they'd like to pat themselves on the back for the success of their latest project, the Ogre, which we saw for the first time at tonight's VGX.
"No man who meets The Hunt returns to this world." Well. I guess we can just go ahead and call off The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt then, right? No? Oh, well, then, feast your eyes on this premiere trailer for the game at the VGX.
This is No Man's Sky by Hello Games, which brought us Joe Danger. This is something completely different, a sprawling space adventure, as its insane premiere trailer shows.
This is the "Snowdrop Engine" powering The Division, which spent about three minutes at the Spike VGX boasting of the detail it will deliver to "a chaotic and decayed New York City."
Fresh off its big cover in Game Informer this week, Bungie's next space opera, Destiny, got this closeup premiere video at tonight's Spike VGX. The game arrives Sept. 9, 2014.
Well, this is pretty cool. Tonight at the Spike VGX, Tim Schafer revealed that Frodo himself, Mr. Elijah Wood, will voice the male lead in Schafer's upcoming adventure game Broken Age.
No big upsets here: the Spike VGX named Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V their game of 2013. Other nominees were not named Grand Theft Auto.
Time stands still and stutters after an experiment gone wrong in Quantum Break, the first next-gen title from Remedy, the makers of Alan Wake. The studio showed off the game with a trailer at tonight's VGX. Here it is.
It's Spike VGX time, which means we're in for an afternoon filled with trailers, new game announcements, and a show that will hopefully be less gross than its tagline.
The Spike VGAs are now the Spike VGX. This year's annual award show is happening this Saturday at 6pm Eastern, and although it won't be televised live, we'll have the whole three-hour extravaganza streaming here on Kotaku for you.
